Listen: How Evelyn Glennie, a Deaf Girl, Changed Percussion

£7.99

This inspiring picture book for 4-8 year old children, written by Shannon Stocker,  tells the true story of world-famous deaf percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie.

This is a story of music.
Of obstacles.
Of strength and hard work.
Of all you can accomplish when you dream.

As a child, Evelyn Glennie’s ears began to hurt. Voices became distant whispers. Ringing phones sounded like muffled crunches in her ears. But when she was told that she would need to wear hearing aids for the rest of her life, Evelyn was determined that this this would never stop her from playing music. Instead of giving up on her dreams, Evelyn found new ways to listen…

“No. You can’t,” people said.
But Evelyn knew she could. She had found her own way to listen.

With stunning illustrations from Devon Holzwarth, and a special note from Evelyn Glennie herself, this is the perfect book to inspire children to never give up on their dreams.
